Michele E. Gwynn is a Bestselling Multigenre Author of Crime/Detective books, Sci-Fi/Horror books, and Paranormal/Supernatural romance books, but what would Gwynn say about herself?

“Well, I’m an unapologetic news junkie, a supporter of equal rights, women’s rights, animals rights, and the protection of our environment. I’m definitely progressive, but not some elite moneyed type. I’ve spent more of my life living paycheck to paycheck, and I understand what it takes to make it. It’s called hard work. And yet, none of us gets anywhere without help, whether it’s advice, a helping hand reaching back, an introduction, or just cheerleading in the background, we all need it. I’m a live and let live kind of gal, born in Germany to a military father, and raised in south Texas by my mother and military-retired step-father. I struggled coming up in this world with a diagnosis of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis that nearly ended me at age ten, surpassed every prognosis from my doctors early on by refusing to expire, and instead, thrived. I’ve worked in medical administration, education, and then journalism before I began writing books. I’ve traveled through Europe, interviewed a slew of celebrities, all because I refused to give up. That’s just who I am. Oh, and on occasion, I curse like a sailor, but hey, I’m always honest. So why pen books? I have one hell of an imagination, an appreciation for twisty plots, and a need to bring awareness about world issues to people. For example, the running theme throughout my Checkpoint, Berlin Detective Series is human trafficking, a horrific ordeal endured by hundreds of thousands of abducted women and children all over the world each day. It’s unfathomable that in this age, it’s still happening, often right under our noses. So I write, about good people who happen to have flaws, and yet they do all they can to help others, because isn’t that who we all are? Flawed people trying to do right? That’s me. That’s what I write, and I do it without apology. It’s sometimes raw and in-your-face, but so is reality, which is usually far worse. It’s my hope that somewhere between the pages I manage to entertain and inspire my readers with intelligent plots woven with real-world facts, layered here and there with a touch of romance, a hint of steam, and sprinkled with a bit of dry wit.

Checkpoint Author Visits The Faust Hotel

There's quite a lot of history to be found in the small towns outside of San Antonio. One of these gems happens to be The Faust Hotel & Brewing Company located just 15 minutes from my house, right up I35 North, in the town of New Braunfels, Texas.

Mondays are usually so dull, but my friend Carmen was off work, and we decided to head on over to The Faust for dinner. I found it online when checking for good places to scarf down some German food, and when I saw the name of it, I knew we had to go there. As many of you know, one of my engaging Checkpoint series characters shares the same last name, Herman Faust, the dry-witted Direktor of the Landeskriminalamt (LKA). I felt it was a sign, one that screamed "Come here!"

Off we gals went, enjoying great conversation on the way. The Faust sits on S. Seguin Ave. near the historic downtown region of New Braunfels. Out front of this four-story hotel is a bubbling fountain that is part of the front-facing wall. The night desk …
